Spindle items

West Seneca Editor

BEST IN TOWN — Stack Burger is taking the local sandwich scene by storm.

Its latest victory came last weekend at the 2018 Taste of Buffalo where the company’s Demon Burger was awarded Best Meat Item and Best Overall Item.

In 2016, Stack Burger’s deep fried PB and J took home the Chair’s Choice award and Best Overall Item.

If you didn’t visit the Taste or haven’t given these burgers a try, stop in for a bite at 174 Orchard Park Road, or its soon-to-be-open new location with sit-down service, at 1506 Abbott Road.

IN PURSUIT OF ART — Maggie DeWitt has been named the winner of a scholarship from Enjoy the Journey Art Gallery.

DeWitt is a graduate of East Senior High School. She will be attending Villa Maria College for art in Cheektowaga this fall, with interests in painting, drawing, photography and video animation.

DeWitt said she is very excited about her future career in the arts.

She was a Student of Excellence in 2018, attended the Albright-Knox Future Curators Program in 2017-18 and was honored as Student of the Month in Art in 2017.

“We wish her the very best in her future creative endeavors,” said gallery owner Paulette Krakowski.

The gallery has been giving a $500 scholarship to a West Seneca student who is attending college in arts the following fall. As of this year, Enjoy The Journey Art Gallery has awarded $3,500 in scholarships to West Seneca students.

SIGN THE PETITION — Efforts are underway to fight an economic move that could threaten the viability of community newspapers. A single paper supplier, Norpac, is trying to manipulate the trade laws and convince the government to assess tariffs on Canadian imports of uncoated groundwood paper, which includes newsprint. Publishers and printers will not be able to absorb these tariffs and will be forced to cut costs that will ultimately result in fewer American jobs.

To register your vote in favor of reversing these tariffs, visit www.stopnewsprinttariffs.org. See the ad on page 15.

LOOKING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS — If you have an interest in taking photographs of news or sports events for one of our nine papers, we’re looking for you. Experience is preferred.
